Anestrus: A state of sexual inactivity in female animals exhibiting no ESTROUS CYCLE. Causes of anestrus include pregnancy, presence of offspring, season, stress, and pathology.Estrus: The period in the ESTROUS CYCLE associated with maximum sexual receptivity and fertility in non-primate female mammals.Luteinizing Hormone: A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Luteinizing hormone regulates steroid production by the interstitial cells of the TESTIS and the OVARY. The preovulatory LUTEINIZING HORMONE surge in females induces OVULATION, and subsequent LUTEINIZATION of the follicle. LUTEINIZING HORMONE consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Seasons: Divisions of the year according to some regularly recurrent phenomena usually astronomical or climatic. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)Sheep: Any of the ruminant mammals with curved horns in the genus Ovis, family Bovidae. They possess lachrymal grooves and interdigital glands, which are absent in GOATS.Progesterone: The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormones: Peptides, natural or synthetic, that stimulate the release of PITUITARY HORMONES. They were first isolated from the extracts of the HYPOTHALAMUS; MEDIAN EMINENCE; PITUITARY STALK; and NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. In addition, some hypophysiotropic hormones control pituitary cell differentiation, cell proliferation, and hormone synthesis. Some can act on more than one pituitary hormone.Buffaloes: Ruminants of the family Bovidae consisting of Bubalus arnee and Syncerus caffer. This concept is differentiated from BISON, which refers to Bison bison and Bison bonasus.Postpartum Period: In females, the period that is shortly after giving birth (PARTURITION).Estradiol: The 17-beta-isomer of estradiol, an aromatized C18 steroid with hydroxyl group at 3-beta- and 17-beta-position. Estradiol-17-beta is the most potent form of mammalian estrogenic steroids.Breeding: The production of offspring by selective mating or HYBRIDIZATION, GENETIC in animals or plants.Ovulation: The discharge of an OVUM from a rupturing follicle in the OVARY.Follicle Stimulating Hormone: A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Follicle-stimulating hormone stimulates GAMETOGENESIS and the supporting cells such as the ovarian GRANULOSA CELLS, the testicular SERTOLI CELLS, and LEYDIG CELLS. FSH consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Reproduction: The total process by which organisms produce offspring. (Stedman, 25th ed)Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone: A decapeptide that stimulates the synthesis and secretion of both pituitary gonadotropins, LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE. GnRH is produced by neurons in the septum PREOPTIC AREA of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released into the pituitary portal blood, leading to stimulation of GONADOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR PITUITARY GLAND.Deer: The family Cervidae of 17 genera and 45 species occurring nearly throughout North America, South America, and Eurasia, on most associated continental islands, and in northern Africa. Wild populations of deer have been established through introduction by people in Cuba, New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, and other places where the family does not naturally occur. They are slim, long-legged and best characterized by the presence of antlers. Their habitat is forests, swamps, brush country, deserts, and arctic tundra. They are usually good swimmers; some migrate seasonally. (Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, p1362)Secretory Rate: The amount of a substance secreted by cells or by a specific organ or organism over a given period of time; usually applies to those substances which are formed by glandular tissues and are released by them into biological fluids, e.g., secretory rate of corticosteroids by the adrenal cortex, secretory rate of gastric acid by the gastric mucosa.Ovarian Follicle: An OOCYTE-containing structure in the cortex of the OVARY. The oocyte is enclosed by a layer of GRANULOSA CELLS providing a nourishing microenvironment (FOLLICULAR FLUID). The number and size of follicles vary depending on the age and reproductive state of the female. The growing follicles are divided into five stages: primary, secondary, tertiary, Graafian, and atretic. Follicular growth and steroidogenesis depend on the presence of GONADOTROPINS.Ovary: The reproductive organ (GONADS) in female animals. In vertebrates, the ovary contains two functional parts: the OVARIAN FOLLICLE for the production of female germ cells (OOGENESIS); and the endocrine cells (GRANULOSA CELLS; THECA CELLS; and LUTEAL CELLS) for the production of ESTROGENS and PROGESTERONE.Ovariectomy: The surgical removal of one or both ovaries.Corpus Luteum: The yellow body derived from the ruptured OVARIAN FOLLICLE after OVULATION. The process of corpus luteum formation, LUTEINIZATION, is regulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE.Estrus Detection: Methods for recognizing the state of ESTRUS.Prolactin: A lactogenic hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). It is a polypeptide of approximately 23 kD. Besides its major action on lactation, in some species prolactin exerts effects on reproduction, maternal behavior, fat metabolism, immunomodulation and osmoregulation. Prolactin receptors are present in the mammary gland, hypothalamus, liver, ovary, testis, and prostate.Gonadotropins, Equine: Gonadotropins secreted by the pituitary or the placenta in horses. This term generally refers to the gonadotropins found in the pregnant mare serum, a rich source of equine CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN; LUTEINIZING HORMONE; and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE. Unlike that in humans, the equine LUTEINIZING HORMONE, BETA SUBUNIT is identical to the equine choronic gonadotropin, beta. Equine gonadotropins prepared from pregnant mare serum are used in reproductive studies.Lactation: The processes of milk secretion by the maternal MAMMARY GLANDS after PARTURITION. The proliferation of the mammary glandular tissue, milk synthesis, and milk expulsion or let down are regulated by the interactions of several hormones including ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; PROLACTIN; and OXYTOCIN.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Luteal Phase: The period in the MENSTRUAL CYCLE that follows OVULATION, characterized by the development of CORPUS LUTEUM, increase in PROGESTERONE production by the OVARY and secretion by the glandular epithelium of the ENDOMETRIUM. The luteal phase begins with ovulation and ends with the onset of MENSTRUATION.Periodicity: The tendency of a phenomenon to recur at regular intervals; in biological systems, the recurrence of certain activities (including hormonal, cellular, neural) may be annual, seasonal, monthly, daily, or more frequently (ultradian).Estrous Cycle: The period of cyclic physiological and behavior changes in non-primate female mammals that exhibit ESTRUS. The estrous cycle generally consists of 4 or 5 distinct periods corresponding to the endocrine status (PROESTRUS; ESTRUS; METESTRUS; DIESTRUS; and ANESTRUS).Gonadotropins, Pituitary: Hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR) that stimulate gonadal functions in both males and females. They include FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE that stimulates germ cell maturation (OOGENESIS; SPERMATOGENESIS), and LUTEINIZING HORMONE that stimulates the production of sex steroids (ESTROGENS; PROGESTERONE; ANDROGENS).Drug Implants: Small containers or pellets of a solid drug implanted in the body to achieve sustained release of the drug.Fertility: The capacity to conceive or to induce conception. It may refer to either the male or female.Infusion Pumps, Implantable: Implanted fluid propulsion systems with self-contained power source for providing long-term controlled-rate delivery of drugs such as chemotherapeutic agents or analgesics. Delivery rate may be externally controlled or osmotically or peristatically controlled with the aid of transcutaneous monitoring.Sexual Maturation: Achievement of full sexual capacity in animals and in humans.Cattle: Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.Bromocriptine: A semisynthetic ergotamine alkaloid that is a dopamine D2 agonist. It suppresses prolactin secretion.Animal Nutritional Physiological Phenomena: Nutritional physiology of animals.Castration: Surgical removal or artificial destruction of gonads.Food Deprivation: The withholding of food in a structured experimental situation.Pregnancy, Animal: The process of bearing developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero in non-human mammals, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Photoperiod: The time period of daily exposure that an organism receives from daylight or artificial light. It is believed that photoperiodic responses may affect the control of energy balance and thermoregulation.Ovulation Induction: Techniques for the artifical induction of ovulation, the rupture of the follicle and release of the ovum.Melatonin: A biogenic amine that is found in animals and plants. In mammals, melatonin is produced by the PINEAL GLAND. Its secretion increases in darkness and decreases during exposure to light. Melatonin is implicated in the regulation of SLEEP, mood, and REPRODUCTION. Melatonin is also an effective antioxidant.

Effects of time of suckling during the solar day on duration of the postpartum anovulatory interval in Brahman x Hereford (F1) cows. (1/254)

Previously published reports have indicated that postpartum anovulatory intervals can be markedly reduced and rebreeding performance enhanced in Bos taurus cows by eliminating nighttime suckling. We sought to confirm this hypothesis by examining the effects of day, nighttime, and ad libitum suckling on suckling behavior of calves, duration of the postpartum anovulatory interval, and pregnancy rates in 45 fall-calving Brahman x Hereford (F1) cows. Beginning on d 9 to 12 postpartum, calves were removed from lactating cows from 0700 to 1900 (Night-Suckled, n = 15) or from 1900 to 0700 (Day-Suckled, n = 15), or remained with their dams continuously (Ad Libitum-Suckled, n = 15). Cows in each group were maintained with fertile Angus bulls from d 10 postpartum until the first normal luteal phase or 100 d postpartum, whichever occurred first. Cows were observed for estrous behavior twice daily, and jugular blood samples were collected twice weekly for the determination of serum progesterone concentration. Mean number of suckling episodes per 24 h was greater (P < .0001) for the Ad Libitum-Suckled group than either Night- or Day-Suckled groups (5.9+/-.42 vs 3.8+/-.14, and 3.9+/-.32, respectively). Hourly analysis of suckling episodes in the Ad Libitum group indicated that they were not skewed toward a particular period, with suckling occurring at a periodicity of 4 to 6 h. Intervals to the first rise in progesterone > or = 1 ng/mL (32+/-2.5, 32+/-4.5, and 31+/-1.7 d, respectively), first normal luteal phase (38+/-3.1, 38+/-3.8, and 37+/-2.5 d, respectively), and first estrus (43+/-3.5, 40+/-3.9, and 36+/-1.1 d, respectively) did not differ (P > .05) among the three groups. Similarly, cumulative pregnancy rates within 100 d after calving did not differ (P > .05). These results in Bos indicus x Bos taurus (F1) cattle do not support the previous conclusions in Bos taurus that eliminating nighttime suckling reduces the postpartum anovulatory interval.  (+info)

Active immunization with a synthetic fragment of pig inhibin alpha-subunit increases ovulation rate and embryo production in superovulated ewes but season affects its efficiency. (2/254)

Two experiments were designed to determine the effects of active immunization against one of two synthetic peptides from humans (inhibin-like peptide) or pigs (inhibin alpha-subunit) on antibody titres, ovulation rate and embryo production in ewes superovulated with 16 U ovine FSH. In Expt 1, during the breeding season, 30 ewes were subdivided into three groups: group I served as the non-immunized control; group II was immunized against inhibin-like peptide (100 micrograms inhibin-like peptide equivalent, followed by three booster injections); group III was immunized against pig inhibin alpha-subunit conjugated to human serum albumin (96 micrograms for the primary administration and 46 micrograms for the booster). In Expt 2, the efficiency of immunization against pig inhibin alpha-subunit on ovarian response and embryo production was evaluated during the non-breeding season in two groups of ewes (n = 12): group IV was a non-immunized control; Group V was immunized against pig inhibin alpha-subunit. During the breeding season, the ewes immunized against pig inhibin alpha-subunit showed higher antibody titres compared with the group immunized against inhibin-like peptide (P < 0.01) and a significant increase in ovulation rate (12.1) compared with both the control (5.0; P < 0.05) and the inhibin-like peptide-immunized group (3.1; P < 0.01). Immunization against pig inhibin alpha-subunit increased transferable embryo yield 4.5-fold (6.7 versus 1.5; P < 0.01) and improved embryo quality (94.6 versus 40.6%; P < 0.01). During the non-breeding season, immunization against pig inhibin alpha-subunit enhanced ovulation rate from 2.6 in the controls to 9.4 (P < 0.01) but did not affect transferable embryo production (3.9 versus 2.1; P > 0.05) and significantly lowered their quality (54.1 versus 100%; P < 0.01). In conclusion, active immunization against pig inhibin alpha-subunit can improve superovulatory response during the breeding season, while it appears to be unable to increase embryo yield during the seasonal anoestrus.  (+info)

Oestrogen and progesterone receptor immunoreactivity and c-fos expression in the ovine cervix. (3/254)

Immunocytochemistry was used to detect the presence of oestrogen and progesterone receptors in the cervices of prepubertal lambs, seasonally anoestrous ewes, cyclic ewes, and pregnant ewes of known gestational stages, to define the roles of gonadal steroids in cervical function. The presence of the immediate early gene product, c-Fos, a marker for cellular activation, was also investigated using immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization. Oestrogen receptor immunoreactivity was restricted to the endometrium on days 0-3 of the oestrous cycle (day 0 = oestrus). In immature animals, very few scattered nuclei in the endometrium were immunoreactive. Oestrogen receptor immunoreactivity was not apparent in the endometrium during the remainder of the oestrous cycle or in this region in anoestrous animals. In pregnant ewes, oestrogen receptor immunostaining appeared as relatively few isolated nuclei in the connective tissue stroma. Progesterone receptor immunoreactivity was found in the endometrium at days 0-3 of the oestrous cycle and also in the luminal epithelium, the myometrium and the blood vessels. Progesterone receptor immunoreactivity was also found in these regions, with the exception of the endometrium, at all other stages examined. Immunostaining for c-Fos was present in the endometrium at days 0-3 of the oestrous cycle, and some scattered immunopositive nuclei were present in prepubertal animals. c-Fos immunoreactivity was also found in the myometrium and in blood vessels at all other stages examined. Visualization of c-fos gene expression by in situ hybridization showed that it occurred in the luminal epithelium and blood vessels at oestrus, but was restricted to the blood vessels in all other samples examined.  (+info)

Effect of progesterone on the GnRH-induced secretion of oestradiol and androstenedione from the autotransplanted ovary of the anoestrous ewe. (4/254)

Two experiments were conducted during the anoestrous period in Border Leicester x Merino ewes with ovarian autotransplants to study the effects of a single injection of 20 mg progesterone on follicular steroid secretion. The aim of these experiments was to determine whether pretreatment with a 20 mg intramuscular injection of progesterone could reduce GnRH-induced ovarian steroid secretion in anoestrous ewes. In both experiments, an injection of 150 ng GnRH induced an LH pulse in all ewes with a maximum concentration 10 min (the first post-injection sample) after injection. Oestradiol and androstenedione secretion increased progressively after the GnRH-induced LH pulse and reached maximum rates of secretion between 60 and 90 min before decreasing slowly to pre-injection rates at 150 min. There were no differences in the pattern of secretion of oestradiol (measured in both experiments) or androstenedione (measured only in Expt 2). In Expt 1, the injection of progesterone 72 h before the challenge with GnRH had no effect on the maximum rate of oestradiol secretion from the autotransplanted ovary. However, in Expt 2, when progesterone was given either 36 or 60 h before GnRH, there was a significant suppression in the maximum rate of secretion of both oestradiol and androstenedione between 60 and 90 min after GnRH injection. These data show that pretreatment of anoestrous sheep with progesterone can suppress LH-stimulated steroid secretion from the ovary and indicate that progesterone may have a direct effect on oestrogenic follicles in sheep.  (+info)

Interactive effects of central leptin and peripheral fuel oxidation on estrous cyclicity. (5/254)

A 48-h period of fasting inhibits estrous cycles in Syrian hamsters, and fasting-induced anestrus can be prevented by intracerebroventricular treatment with leptin during the fasting period. In the present experiment, the effects of intracerebroventricular leptin were blocked by systemic treatment with inhibitors of metabolic fuel oxidation. Leptin was infused continuously into the lateral ventricles (1 microgram/day) during fasting on days 1 and 2 of the estrous cycle. Intraperitoneal injection of 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) was used to block both central and peripheral glucose oxidation, and intragastric treatment with methyl palmoxirate (MP) was used to inhibit peripheral long-chain fatty acid oxidation during the fasting and leptin-treatment period. 2DG or MP were administered at doses that did not induce anestrus in ad libitum-fed hamsters. Despite elevated central levels of leptin, fasting-induced anestrus occurred in hamsters treated with either 2DG or MP. Thus an elevated intracerebroventricular leptin concentration is not a sufficient condition for normal estrous cycles when fuel oxidation is inhibited. These results raise the possibility that central leptin influences reproduction by indirect effects on peripheral fuel metabolism.  (+info)

Hormonal control of urokinase plasminogen activator secretion by sheep ovarian surface epithelial cells. (6/254)

Secretion of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) by ovarian surface epithelium (OSE) adjacent to the preovulatory ovine follicle has been implicated in apical tissue degradation and follicular rupture. In vitro experiments were designed to test the hypothesis that uPA release by OSE is under direct hormonal control. Epithelial cells were isolated from the ovarian surface of sheep using a polytetrafluorethylene scraper designed to dislodge adherent cells from culture flasks. Amidolytic cleavage of a uPA-specific chromogen (carbobenzoxy-L-gamma-glutamyl [alpha-ot-but]-glycyl-arginine-p-nitroanilide monoacetate) was used as a measure of enzymatic bioactivity in OSE-conditioned incubation media. Secretion of uPA by OSE suspensions from proestrous ewes was stimulated by exposure (2 h) to a preovulatory surge-like concentration of LH. OSE cells obtained during the luteal phase or anestrus were not responsive to LH. Baseline rates of uPA secretion and expression of estradiol receptors (in situ immunofluorescence detection) were not affected by reproductive status. Induction of uPA secretion by anestrous OSE was attained after priming (6 h) with estradiol-17beta; responsiveness was attributed to gonadotropin receptor (ligand binding) up-regulation. Monolayers of OSE established on polyethylene membranes secreted uPA predominately in a basal (i.e., toward the substratum) direction. We suggest that OSE in juxtaposition with the (hyperemic) wall of the preovulatory follicle is perfused by surge levels of LH, invoking uPA release into underlying ovarian tissues.  (+info)

Ovarian function in nutritionally induced anoestrous cows: effect of exogenous gonadotrophin-releasing hormone in vivo and effect of insulin and insulin-like growth factor I in vitro. (7/254)

Ovarian function of nutritionally induced anoestrus cows was evaluated in vivo (Expt 1) and in vitro (Expt 2). In Expt 1, 32 nutritionally induced anoestrous beef cows were divided into four treatment groups receiving: (1) saline infusions at one pulse every 4 h for 13 days (control); (2) 2 micrograms GnRH at one pulse every 4 h (2 micrograms infused in 1.8 ml saline over 5 min) for 13 days (GnRH-4); (3) 2 micrograms GnRH at one pulse every 1 h for 13 days (GnRH-1); and (4) continuous infusion of 2 micrograms GnRH (a total of 2 micrograms in 34 ml h-1) for 13 days (GnRH-C). On the last day of treatment, cows were killed, ovaries were removed and follicular fluid samples (n = 149) were collected. The percentage of cows with luteal activity on day 13 was significantly different (P < 0.01) among treatments (0, 25, 75 and 25% for control, GnRH-4, GnRH-1 and GnRH-C cows, respectively). Owing to the large percentage of ovulatory cows in the GnRH-1 group (n = 6), anovulatory cows (n = 2) were removed from this treatment group for statistical analysis, as were cows with luteal tissue from the GnRH-4 (n = 2) and GnRH-C (n = 2) groups. The numbers of small (1.0-4.9 mm) and medium plus large (> or = 5 mm) follicles were not affected (P > 0.10) by treatment. However, GnRH-4 cows (n = 6) had greater (P < 0.05) concentrations of oestradiol in follicular fluid than did control (n = 8) but not GnRH-1 (n = 6) or GnRH-C (n = 6) cows. Concentrations of insulin-like growth factor I were greater (P < 0.05) in the follicular fluid of GnRH-1 cows than in all other treatment groups. Concentrations of androstenedione and progesterone in follicular fluid were not affected (P > 0.10) by treatment or follicle size. The binding activity of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins was not affected by GnRH treatment. However, the binding activity of insulin-like growth factor binding protein 2, 29-32 kDa and 22 kDa insulin-like growth factor binding proteins were greater (P < 0.05) in small versus medium plus large follicles. In Expt 2, granulosa cells were collected from nutritionally anoestrous cows to determine whether ovarian cells from anoestrous cows have the capacity to respond to insulin-like growth factor I or insulin in vitro. Both insulin-like growth factor I (20 and 200 ng ml-1) and insulin (10, 100 and 1000 ng ml-1) increased (P < 0.05) granulosa cell proliferation and progesterone production. In conclusion, pulsatile infusion of 2 micrograms GnRH (every 1 or 4 h) for 13 days into nutritionally induced anoestrous cows results in increased intrafollicular oestradiol and insulin-like growth factor I concentrations and can stimulate ovulation without markedly affecting concentrations of androstenedione or progesterone, or the binding activity of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins, in follicular fluid. In addition, granulosa cells from nutritionally induced anoestrous cows have the capacity to respond to insulin-like growth factor I and insulin in vitro, indicating that the decrease in trophic factors observed with restricted feeding does not reduce the response of the ovary to insulin-like growth factor I and insulin.  (+info)

Segmental aplasia of the left paramesonephric duct in the cow. (8/254)

Segmental aplasia of the left uterine horn in a multiparous Holstein cow was diagnosed by palpation and ultrasonography. Treatment with prostaglandin was unsuccessful in eliminating the fluid from the distended uterine horn. Segmental aplasia should be included in the list of differential diagnoses for cows with nonresponsive uterine enlargement.  (+info)

During the autumn/winter/spring periods of three seasons, 32 pure and crossbred Irish Draught mares were stabled and maintained under extended daylength of 16 hours light beginning December 16th. Prior to the first ovulatory oestrus following a period of acyclicity (seasonal anoestrus), all mares were examined at intervals of no more than 7-10 days, more frequently when follicular activity increased and at least once daily for at least 11 days before ovulation and when a follicle reached 35 mm. All follicles of 20 mm or larger were measured and recorded. In the absence of any follicle in either ovary larger than 20 mm, the diameter of any smaller follicle was also recorded. It was therefore possible to trace back from the time of ovulation, the diameter of the ovulatory follicle during its development. Where over several days, one follicle in an ovary regressed, it was assumed that another initially smaller follicle in the same ovary had grown to overtake the larger and progressed to ovulation. ...
Body condition scoring is a tool that can be used to estimate the energy reserves of cattle. In the beef industry a 9-point scale is used, with 1 being emaciated and 9 being obese (Kunkle, Sand, and Rae 1997). Using BCS, producers can estimate the energy balance of their herd, which is critical to reproductive efficiency. Reports have shown that by 80 days postpartum 62% of cows with a BCS of 4 or lower at calving were experiencing estrous cycles compared to 88%-98% that calved at a BCS of 5-6. Experiments have also demonstrated that cows with a BCS of 4 or lower had pregnancy rates of 61%, in contrast to 90% for those cows that calved with a BCS of 5 or greater (Selk et al. 1986).. Females with restricted intake of energy have decreased levels of LH secretion, which is the hormone that signals ovulation. Beef cows with inadequate energy reserves or poor BCS typically have several follicular waves before their first ovulation. Thus, energy reserves and intake affect the length of time until the ...
BACKGROUND: In mare, different methods of earlier cyclicity induction and hastening first ovulation of the year have been reported. OBJECTIVES: The goal of present study was to investigate the effect of progesterone (Cue-mate®) on synchronization and acceleration the first ovulation of the year in winter anestrous mares under artificial lighting system. METHODS: After detection of anestrus mares, artificial lighting regimen of 16h light was conducted since early December for both treatment and control groups mares. After detecting of 25 mm follicle on the ovary, treatment group mares received Cue-Mate and examined through rectal ultrasound until follicle reached in size of 35mm, when Cue-mate was removed. Daily ultrasound examination and teasing were done until detection of ovulation. RESULTS: Based on our results, no significant difference in rate of ovulation (66% vs 60%) and size of ovulatory follicle were existed between treatment and control group. In addition to, despite of decreasing time

Twenty-eight Columbia ewes were made available for study during their breeding and anestrous seasons. After the regularity of the estrous cycles had been established, eight of the ewes were sacrificed in pairs at four different stages of the estrous cycle. Eight additional ewes were sacrificed during anestrus. Pituitary glands, ovaries, uteri, thyroids and adrenals were grossly observed, removed and weighed. The anterior pituitaries were lyophilized and assayed on a unit weight basis for gonadotropic content by the use of hypophysectomized, immature, female rats. Mean gonadotropic activity of the anterior pituitaries, as indicated by the ovarian weight response in the rats, was higher during the anestrous season than during the breeding season. Mean ICSH activity, as indicated by stimulation of the ovarian interstitial tissue of the rats, was simila for both seasons, while mean FSH activity, as indicated by ovarian follicle diameter in the assay rats, was significantly higher during anestrus ...

The GnRH vaccine may offer an alternative to the current immunocontraceptive method in elephant cows which uses native porcine zona pellucida proteins derived from abattoir slaughtered pigs as the immunogen, greatly limiting its availability. The pZP vaccine is stored at -20 °C and must be mixed with an adjuvant before use. The GnRH vaccine Improvac® is commercially available, already contains the adjuvant and can be stored at 4 °C. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) vaccine Improvac® (Pfizer Animal Health, Sandton, South Africa) in the induction of anoestrus in elephant cows. The Improvac® was administered to eight adult, female, healthy, free-ranging elephants, located in Entabeni Private Game Reserve in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. Another four cows were left untreated and served as controls. The monitoring of the experimental population was conducted over a twelve-month observation period via non-invasive faecal ...

The same is also true after parturition following a normal pregnancy. This phase lasts about 3 months before the bitch returns to pro-oestrus. Signs of oestrus The first indication that pro-oestrus is approaching is the onset of slight swelling of the vulval lips. This generally precedes the commencement of bleeding by several days. Labial swelling is progressive during the pro-oestrus period. Bleeding attains its maximum early in pro-oestrus and continues at this level into the early part of true oestrus. As the bitch passes into anoestrus, there is a reduction in the amount and degree of coiling of the glands. e. in metoestrus, there is evidence of desquamation of the endometrial epithelium; however, by about 120-130 days the epithelium has been restored by proliferation of cells from the crypts of the endometrial glands. 34 Changes in the ovaries During anoestrus the ovaries are oval and slightly flattened. In a bitch of medium size they measure ENDOGENOUS AND EXOGENOUS CONTROL OF OVARIAN ...

By Heather Smith Thomas. One of the most challenging parts of breeding season is getting every mare safely in foal. Dr. James Bailey, a practitioner with Royal Vista Southwest, an equine reproduction-focused practice in Purcell, Okla., deals with broodmare challenges on a regular basis. Mare owners should always be thinking about the next breeding season, looking at mares in the fall before they cease cycling (anestrus), he said. This is a good time to do a work-up on mares that are open. Our basic work-up here includes palpation, ultrasonic evaluation, examination of the cervix, uterine biopsy, and uterine culture (assessing for microbial growth in the laboratory). The culture should include aerobic bacteria, and the veterinarian might also want to culture for anaerobic bacteria as well as fungal infections-depending on the age of the mare and the problems that have been encountered with her in the past. At this time we also try to diagnose and evaluate any conformation problems and do a ...
Concern has been expressed over the apparent decline in efficiency of detection of oestrus in recent years [48]. Data from New Zealand [8] show a significant decline in 21-day submission rate of 0.5% per year from 1973 (94%) to 1996 (82%). This may reflect a decrease in efficiency of detection of oestrus or an increase in anoestrus. Data from the UK and North America show a slight decline in efficiency of detection of oestrus during the 1980s and 1990s [21, 70]. One component of this decline may be a reduction in the intensity of expression of oestrus. A comparison of the average duration of oestrus in pasture-based, spring-calving Irish dairy cows between the 1970s (9.3 h: [50]) and 25 years later (8.4 h: [44]) suggests no difference in the duration of oestrus. However, comparison of the average number of mounts per oestrus reveals a decline from, on average, 52 mounts to 12 mounts. High genetic merit and high milk yield have been associated with reduced expression of oestrus at first ovulation ...
At the end of last breeding season, my mare was cultured before the fall transition to make sure she was clean going into anestrus for the winter. My vet fractured the culture tip off inside my mares uterus. My mare had two rounds of high volume lavage with oxytocin follow up (plus she was nursing a foal at the time). The tip was never visibly recovered. My vet was never able to scan the tip in utero with 100% confidence. Is there any chance she expelled the culture tip on her own? Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? Whats next? The mare has been recultured this spring and is clean and ready to go. Should I try to have here scoped before I go forward and try to inseminate her on her next cycle ...
However, to walk inside within the remains of the walls, or to wonder in the deserted (and neglected) halls would take you back in time.

Weather has always been the #1 topic of conversation for anyone in agriculture. Changing weather patterns have made it even more topical. Current research suggests that there could be many more days of high temperature, and that means a growing potential for heat stressed dairy cows. For those of us in the dairy business, this trend has the potential to dramatically impact all aspects of the industry from breeding to milk production.. Lets Start with the Bad News First. Numerous studies have documented the challenges (Jordan, 2003; Rensis, 2003; West, 2004) which impact reproductive performance. Heat stressed cows eat less and this nutrition deficit results in prolonged postpartum anestrus and impaired embryonic development. In addition, this inadequate nutrient intake reduces body condition score and causes cessation of estrus cycles. Unfortunately, symptoms induced by heat stress gradually pile on and the ultimate result is that the success of gestation is severely compromised even after the ...

The estrus cycle (also œstrus or estrous cycle) refers to the recurring physiologic changes that are induced by reproductive hormones in most mammalian placental females (humans and great apes are the only mammals who undergo a menstrual cycle instead). Estrus cycles start after puberty in sexually mature females and are interrupted by anestrous phases (see below: anestrus). Typically estrus cycles continue until death. Some animals may display bloody vaginal discharge, often mistaken for menstruation ...

Figure 2: Hormonal development during oestrus cycle.. Out of these, Progesterone has been chosen to be analysed by Herd Navigator™ because it is the one that can provide the most information about the reproductive status of the cow throughout the whole lactation.. After calving the cow has no ovarian activity (anoestrus) and will not produce any progesterone. After some weeks the cow will start ovarian activity, will show heat signs and ovulate. After the ovulation the corpus luteum will be formed in the ovary and start producing Progesterone. Progesterone production will cease when the cow is approaching a new heat and will restart again after the new ovulation. This cycle is repeated every 18 to 24 days until the cow becomes pregnant. In this case the corpus luteum will continue producing Progesterone to maintain the pregnancy (Figure 3). Progesterone production will continue until calving unless the cow aborts, in this case Progesterone production will stop.. ...

The Indian gerbil, Tatera indica (Hardwicke) has been successfully maintained under laboratory conditions for 18 months, during which time over 250 vaginal cycles were recorded and 30 litters were born. Under laboratory conditions this animal had four-to-five-day oestrous cycles and sterile mating induced a ten-day pseudopregnancy. Anoestrus was not infrequent and was characterized by the absence of corpora lutea and large follicles from the ovaries and the atrophy of the uterus.. The mean length of pregnancy was 22.3 days (range 18-30 days) and the litter size varied from two to seven young (mean 4.76 young). Mating at the post-partum oestrus resulted in delayed implantation if a litter of three or more young was being suckled. Under these circumstances pregnancy lasted 36 days (range 34-40 days).. Implantation was interstitial and mesometrial. The chorioallantoic placenta was discoidal, labyrinthine and haemochorial probably becoming haemoendothelial just before term..

Journal of Animal Science 84:343-350. Interpretive Summary: Immunization against GnRH using ovalbumin-GnRH, thioredoxin-GnRH or a cocktail of the ovalbumin-GnRH/thioredoxin-GnRH fusion proteins as antigens prevented estrous cycles in 92% of prepubertal heifers during the 26 wk experimental period. The ovalbumin-GnRH antigen resulted in the greatest GnRH antibody response and 100% of these heifers were anestrus 14 wk after the last booster immunization. Immunization against GnRH had no affect on daily gain or carcass traits, but heifers receiving Synovex H implants had increased gain and leaner carcasses with larger ribeye area. Heifers in this study received a primary and two secondary immunizations. While the ovalbumin-GnRH antigen has potential applications for preventing estrous activity and pregnancy among ...
Intercalving period factor is cost effective parameter for sustainable milk business. By studying the nutritional status of our animals and available resources of feeds and fodder within our jurisdiction we are facing major problems like repeat breeding and anoestrus. To over come this problem, from June 2013 we have started the special Infertility camps for such animals. Modus operand for these camps is our Veterinarian visits the DCS for examining and treating the animals. In these camps we specially focus on the nutritional status of the animals, and accordingly we advice the farmers. We also take the awareness programmes about the use of mineral mixture, balanced cattle feed and the fodder. Till date we have good results of these camps and also excellent feedback about the use of mineral mixture. This programme is now part and parcel of our Animal Husbandry activities ...

Introduction The nutritional status before calving and during the postpartum period, as well as body condition score (BCS) at calving have been shown to affect reproductive performance in cattle (Montiel & Ahuja, 2005; Roche et al., 2009). A loss in BCS at calving and during the postpartum period has also been associated with delays in the resumption of ovarian activity (Shrestha et al., 2005), decreased conception rates and prolonged calving-to-conception intervals in dairy cattle (Gillund et al., 2001). Prolonged periods of a negative energy balance during the early weeks of lactation and a delay in achieving a positive energy balance have contributed to periods of anovulation following calving and long intervals of postpartum anoestrus (Beam & Butler 1999; Butler, 2000). The insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is a potential mediator of the nutritional effects on reproduction (Zulu et al., 2002; Velazquez et al., 2008). The IGF-I concentrations in the peripheral blood of lactating dairy cows ...
The hypothesis that pregnancy success could be improved in early postpartum ewes by prolonging the lifespan of the corpus luteum via active immunization against prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) was tested. Further experiments in ewes immunized against PGF2α investigated the effects of exogenous PGF2α on the preovulatory follicle and the effects of PGF2α and oestradiol benzoate on corpus luteum function. Four weeks prepartum, 39 ewes bred to lamb during seasonal anoestrus received either 5 mg PGF2α-ovalbumin conjugate (n = 20; immunized) or ovalbumin (n = 19; control) in Freunds complete adjuvant. Treatments were repeated on day 5 post partum with reagents emulsified in Freunds incomplete adjuvant. On day 17 post partum, ewes received 500 iu pregnant mares serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) and 48 h later 50 μg gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH). Laparoscopy was performed 36 h after GnRH to assess ovarian activity and ewes with recent ovulations were inseminated into the uterus. No immunized ewes ...

A technique for laparoscopic intrauterine insemination in bitches is described. During natural estrus, 5 beagle bitches were inseminated and S others were naturally mated (control group) twice at a 48-h interval on Days 3 and S (n = 4) or Days 4 and 6 (n = 6) after the increase in plasma progesterone considered to be indicative of the day of the preovulatory LH peak. All the inseminations were with fresh semen and under general anesthesia. The technique involved the introductions of 1) a Verres needle to insufflate the abdominal cavity by direct punction on the middle line 1 cm over the umbilicus, 2) a laparoscope to visualize the abdominal cavity by a 1 cm puncture on the middle line 1 cm under the umbilicus, 3) a forceps used to ...
Horses are long day breeders that depend on natural sun light for reproductive function. Mares are seasonal polyestrous animals that have multiple estrous cycles throughout the warmer months of the year. During periods of shorter daylight and colder weather, reproductive cyclicity in the mare becomes more irregular, eventually leading to a period of anestrus, or lack of estrus or heat. Stallions also experience a decrease in the number of sperm produced and variable shrinkage of the testis in response to shorter daylight. Consequently, reproduction in both stallions and mares slows down in the northern hemisphere during this time of year and mares will not resume predictive and continuous estrous cycles until around April. The horse industry has determined that January 1st of every year is the day at which a horse gains a year in age. As a result, foals born later in the year are at a distinct competitive disadvantage if their biological age is less than their registered age. This is especially ...
Exposing cows to bulls or excretory products of bulls stimulates resumption of ovarian cycling activity in postpartum, suckled, anestrous cows. This biostimulatory effect may be mediated by pheromones produced by bulls that stimulate physiological changes in metabolic regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian (HPO) axis of cows. In Experiment 1, the hypotheses tested were that concentrations of glucose, NEFA, thyroxine (T4), tri-iodothyronine (T3), and T3:T4 ratios do not differ between cows exposed to bulls or steers. The biostimulatory effect of bulls was associated with lower mean concentrations of NEFA in postpartum cows. Experiment 2 was designed to determine if continuous (24-h daily) bull exposure alters temporal patterns of leptin concentrations in postpartum, anestrous cows. Cows exposed to bulls that resumed cycling activity after the start of the experiment tended to have higher leptin concentrations by the end of the 30-d exposure period than cows not exposed to bulls. ...
Due to man-made time constraints with breed registries, many breeders want to speed up the onset of the breeding season to have foals born as close to January 1 as possible. So how do we match up the natural breeding season with the man-made operational breeding season?

An experiment was carried out to provide a data set specifically designed to allow the development of a model to describe the dynamic behaviour of radiocaesium in sheep tissues. A single intraruminal dose of 134CsCl was given to each of 15 Scottish Blackface ewes, aged 1-2 years. Radiocaesium activity concentrations were measured at various time intervals after dosing in blood, faeces and urine and, after slaughter, in a range of tissues and digestive tract contents. A first order compartment model was developed comprising nine compartments representing various organs and tissues in the body. Rate constants for the model were obtained by optimisation to the experimental results. A limited validation of the model was carried out by using it to calculate tissue transfer coefficients (Ff) and biological half-lives (0.5) of radiocaesium in sheep. The values generated compare favourably with published figures. Applications for the model and constraints on its usage are examined along with ...

Wild boar are seasonal breeders. In European male wild boar, sexual activity and testosterone production are triggered by decreasing day length, reaching a peak in October and November when the rut occurs. During the peak of testosterone production, one wild boar under study refused food for a six week period and lost approximately 25% of body weight. In the breeding season the normally solitary males move into female groups and rival males fight for dominance, whereupon the largest and most dominant males achieve the most matings. A wild boar sow, in Europe, is in oestrus with a 21 day cycle from autumn until June/July, at which time she becomes anoestrus until the next autumn. The start of the autumn oestrus in European wild boar may be triggered by nutritional status or day length. The nutritional status of the sow is important for breeding success.The odour from steroidal pheromones present in the male wild boars saliva stimulates receptivity in sows. ;Reproductive activity is seasonal. ...
ABSTRACT. The effect of hormone therapy on the induction of breeding activity in anoestrous Angora goat does was investigated. The best breeding response was obtained with a MAP sponge+PMSG+HCG treatment. Treatment with MAP sponges+PMSG+LH-RH only, induced overt oestrus but, according to the results, failed to induce a functionally active corpus luteum subsequent to oestrus. LH-RH therapy alone, failed to induce any breeding response.. Uittreksel. INDUSERING VAN GESLAGSAKTIWITEIT BY ANGORABOKOOIE IN ANESTRUS.

Leptin (Lep) is known for its involvement in the regulation of reproductive functions. It is important for uterine receptivity, implantation, placental growth and maternal energy homeostasis in several species, but Leps function in the pregnant dog has not been investigated. Pregnant bitches were ovariohysterectomized at pre-implantation, post-implantation, mid-gestation and prepartum luteolysis. Two additional groups were treated with aglepristone in mid-gestation, and ovariohysterectomized 24 or 72 h later. Lep and leptin receptor (LepR) gene expression was detected by semi-quantitative real-time PCR in pre-implantation and inter-placental uterine sections (Ut) and in utero-placental compartments (Ut/Pl). Immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization (ISH) were performed for Lep and LepR protein and mRNA localization. Parametric one-way ANOVA, paired t-test and Wilcoxon signed-rank test were used for statistical analysis. In the Ut/Pl, Lep expression was higher at post-implantation and prepartum

1. The behaviour of ferrets which become pregnant or pseudo-pregnant at the end of the breeding season, so that these states are extended into the time normally occupied by anoestrum, has been investigated.. 2. Pregnancy can go on quite normally during this time.. 3. While the presence of an anterior-pituitary-like substance in the blood (as found in the pregnant urine of man and the horse) might be suggested as a means by which the ovarian secretions are maintained in pregnancy during the anoestrous period of time, these substances, as far as is at present known, exist only in the urine of those species in which the corpus luteum does not persist throughout pregnancy.. 4. Since the full pseudo-pregnant changes can also take place during the anoestrous period of time it is suggested that the corpus luteum can produce its internal secretions at a lower anterior pituitary level in the blood (such as exists during anoestrum) than is necessary for follicular development and the production of ...

Vaccine for issue had to be free from detectable, living virus and capable of protecting sheep against a test dose of virus applied subcutaneously. The 1935 vaccine conformed to these standards and was issued for inoculation in March as three separate batches labelled 1, 2, and 3. The tissues of 140 sheep were employed to make batch 1 of which 22,270 doses were used; 114 to make batch 2 of which 18,000 doses were used and 44 to make batch 3 of which 4,360 doses were used. All the sheep tissues incorporated in the vaccine were obtained from yearling sheep. During 1935 and 1936 the vaccine proved highly efficient in the prevention of loup-ill and no user observed an ill-effect in the inoculated animals. In September, 1937, two and a half years after vaccinating the sheep, two owners complained that scrapie, a disease which had not before been observed in the Blackface breed, was appearing in their stock of Blackface sheep and further that it was confined to animals vaccinated with louping-ill ...
Zulu traces its origins to 1909 when the founders paraded as a marching club. Between 1912 and 1914, the group had adopted the name "Zulu" and an African theme for their costumes. Their inspiration was a vaudeville skit titled "There Never Was and Never Will Be a King Like Me," in which the characters wore grass skirts and dressed in blackface - a common practice in vaudeville theater, for both black and white performers. The costume also included black-dyed turtlenecks (known as "goosenecks") and tights purchased from theatrical supply stores. Some members used Spanish moss from nearby swamps for wigs and rabbit fur as trim. Boots were painted gold ...

CYR61 protein was detected in glandular and luminal epithelial cells of endometrium. Prepubertal female dogs had significantly the lowest expression of Cyr61, followed by proestrus, estrus and anestrus phases. Patients affected by pyometra revealed significantly the highest staining area, followed by diestrus phase. Therefore, Cyr61 in normal endometrium was highest during the secretory phase and lowest during proliferative phase of the estrus cycle, resulting in significant positive linear correlation of cytoplasmatic staining area with progesterone levels. There was no significant correlation with estrogen levels. ...
1. When the suprarenal glands are removed from drakes they die after a mean interval of about 8 hours. They can be kept alive by the hourly injection of cortical extract. The amount of extract which must be injected varies at different times in the year, becoming much larger during the breeding season.. 2. The testes of the drake out of the breeding season weigh 1 to 4 grams. From January to May they increase in size to about 80 grams. During June they rapidly decline to the former small size. The curve of change in weight is closely parallel to the curve for the amount of cortical extract required after adrenalectomy, but the changes in the latter curve precede those in the former.. 3. After adrenalectomy castrated drakes require one third to one half of the amount of cortical extract necessary to keep normal birds alive during the breeding season. The increase in requirement of cortical extract during the breeding season is not due to the large amount of male hormone in the circulation, since ...
